N.H. News Roundup: Granite State flows with beer, Should Scott Brown run?

Another year in the Granite State, and another 43.9 gallons (per person) of beer down the hatch.

I do love to have a good beer, and New Hampshire is by far the best state that I’ve ever lived in to accomplish that. (Sorry Missouri and Anheuser Busch, but it isn’t even close).

Breweries are everywhere you turn, and folks who brew beer are almost always a stone’s throw away.

IncrediBREW Brewery in Nashua combines the two. It allows the customers to make their own beer without any experience necessary.

If you know enough folks around, trading brews is also a common practice.

Our breweries even make special cameos in über popular television shows.

However, there’s still the occasional beer-related controversy.

I touched on this a little last week, but New Hampshire has banned Founder’s (from Michigan) from selling their Founder’s Breakfast Stout.

The reason behind the ban? A child appears on the label with a bowl and a spoon.

So take the good with the not-so-good, but I still prefer to drink a beer in the Granite State.
